This might be cheating as I looked some of these up. Anyway some state capitals that have a "city/town of the same-name."

Albany, New York - Albany, Georgia (On looking it up I find other towns named Albany)

Boston, Massachusetts - Boston, Tennessee (I looked it up, possibly a suburb of Nashville)

Columbus, Ohio - Columbus, Georgia (I looked this one up too)

Dover, Delaware - Dover, New Hampshire (I knew of the NH one, but forgot it so looking up reminded me)

Frankfort, Kentucky - Frankfort, Illinois (Suburb of Chicago, there's several other Frankforts too. I looked this one up)

Nashville, Tennessee - Nashville, Arkansas (Small town, Nashville, Georgia is larger I see)

Salem, Oregon - Salem, Massachusetts

St. Paul, Minnesota - St. Paul, Nebraska (This is a small town. I also knew of small towns in Arkansas and Alaska with this name, plus there are others)

The others I knew have been done so that explains the "looked up" being fairly common. Also I figured there's so many "Springfield's" there would be no point in that.

Some large cities

Cleveland, Ohio - Cleveland, Tennessee (I think the Tennessee one is the one referred to in "Church of God, Cleveland." The existing mention for another Cleveland seems to be the Georgia one)

Miami, Florida - Miami, Oklahoma - Possibly the Oklahoma one is too small.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Philadelphia, Mississippi (The Mississippi one I think is known for a racial incident during the Civil Rights movement)

Portsmouth VA and NH

Both are very colonial-esque.

Cool thread. There are so many, but the largest same name cities would be:
Portland, ME/OR
Arlington, TX/VA
Pasadena, TX/CA
My favorite that I've been to would be Atlanta, ID/GA. Complete opposites.
