MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee and Madison ares not among the 20 finalists for Amazon’s second headquarters.
Amazon on Thursday released a list of the 20 locations that are still in contention for its new $5 billion headquarters. The finalists include Los Angeles, Dallas, Philadelphia, and Midwest cities Chicago and Columbus, Ohio.
