Emphasizing Delaware's lower taxes, educated workforce and proximity to Philadelphia, Gov. John Carney submitted a proposal for Amazon to build its second North American headquarter in his state.

Last month, the online retailer announced plans to invest $5 billion to create what it's calling, "HQ2", that could employ as many as 50,000 people in the next 15 years.

The city said the proposal portrays the numerous elements and assets of Cleveland that make us unique and demonstrates our community's capacity to successfully attract Amazon's HQ2.

But on Friday, Tory conceded that the city's scarcity of rental housing could be a serious knock against the bid, describing a recent meeting with a Silicon valley "titan" where "the first two questions that he and the fellow he brought with him asked were about housing". "Not only is the city and the large, regional group working on this bid excited for the possibility of landing one of the world's largest and most innovative businesses and the 50,000 jobs it could bring with it-the entire region came together to join forces and collaborate to show the world that Detroit was made to move". He believes the city may have a shot at success because of Ontario's announced commitment to funding more university spots in high-tech programs.
