Old versus new, sort of, in Dallas mayoral runoff

State Rep. Eric Johnson has large war chest and backing; Griggs boasts grassroots

DALLAS –– Outside the Reverchon Park Recreation Center in the Oak Lawn area of Dallas on the last day of early voting, city council candidate David Blewett is trying to get the few voters trickling into the center to vote for him.

Blewett is in a runoff against Councilman Philip Kingston, a feisty combative incumbent who is seen as a leader of a growing progressively minded bloc at City Hall. Blewett was the top vote getter in a three-way race. He declined to say who he supports in the mayoral runoff.

But Dee Holley, a Blewett supporter, is supporting Democratic Rep. Eric Johnson against Councilman Scott Griggs for mayor.
