Denver is my guess.
I know Atlanta isn't all the bad, but man,
Are the central States legitimate contenders? I thought they were specifically looking for East Coast.
All this said, IL shoots itself in its own foot at the end of the day. While the cost of living is cheaper than the East coast, property taxes are a bear. And it's not getting better anytime soon. State taxes will very likely keep increasing as well. I want Chicago/IL to get it, but I'm also realistic and it's probably not happening.
I don't think that the bulk of them have to be near a shipping/warehouse hub
An Amazon salary in the South would fit that trend nicely and attract plenty of talent that is young enough to move around the country before they have settled down.
I know nothing about Montgomery County, M.D. but assume it's close to D.C.
Occupy Democrats: “We want fair paying jobs and healthcare.”Atlanta, Georgia: “Hey Amazon HQ2 is at the door offering $80k per year jobs and sweet health care!”Occupy Democrats: “No not that way!”

Are you kidding? Did you even read the article? No it's obvious you did not (or ever do).
Wrong again. Georgia has been Republican for years. ( now turning purple) There are transportation issues due to Republicans opposing Metro Train. Also, as recently as last year, Casey Cable the sitting LG cancelled tax breaks for Delta due to their some weird issue with NRA. Hmmm, that will send a message

Stop being so partisan that you don't even take 5 minutes to read the very thing you're attempting to comment on.
Fortune magazine agrees with me
