Officials in Prince George's County are throwing their hat in the ring to compete for Amazon's new North American Headquarters. 

County Executive Rushern Baker says sites near the College Park, Greenbelt and New Carrollton metro stations are what Amazon is looking for.

Baker says they're prepared to offer Amazon financial incentives. 

He also touted the county's diversity and it's available space for expansion. This comes days after Governor Larry Hogan says he's vying for Port Covington in South Baltimore to be the new location.
