After Amazon announced that it's searching for a location for a second headquarters, Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum suggests he'll be taking part in the sweepstakes.

The Seattle-based shopping giant said Thursday that it's ready to spend $5 billion on a second headquarters, and it's taking proposals from cities across the country as it considers where it will be. Bynum took to Facebook to share his thoughts on the process:

"Whatever it takes," Bynum wrote, apparently alluding to the possibility that he will submit a proposal to Amazon.

Amazon says the headquarters could include as many as 50,000 high-paying jobs. The site is expected to become a "full equal" to the company's headquarters in Seattle.
