Cities across the country, from Chicago to Boston, are already looking to aggressively pursue a bid for a new Amazon headquarters in their backyard. This comes after the retail giant announced Thursday it would accept proposals from cities to build a second headquarters outside of Seattle.

This segment aired on September 8, 2017.
