New Hampshire is making a bid to attract Amazon’s second headquarters.

A spokesman for Republican Gov. Chris Sununu said Wednesday the state will be submitting a proposal to become a hub for the online retailer, which has said its second headquarters will result in up to 50,000 new jobs and a $5 billion investment.

Sununu spoke to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos about a partnership with Amazon in March when they attended a dinner in Washington. Sununu told the Concord Monitor that pro-business efforts during his first year in office have put the state in a strong position.

Applicants have until Oct. 19 to submit proposals. Others locations that have expressed interest include Tucson, Chicago, Philadelphia and Toronto.
