Okay. but MSP is a metro area of 3.8 million and san diego is 3.1 million....GMP of 200 billion to 170 billion, respectively...GMP per capita of 52,631 in MSP metro vs. 54,838 in san diego metro, respectively...but anyway, i'm not talking about metro areas, i'm talking about urban area's. MSP's urban area has over 1 million less people, while san diego's urban area only has about 100,000 less people... also, san diego has the highest R&D activity of the 5 metros... R&D which includes billions in biomedical research, billions in defense technology, and billions in telecommunications... these grants are not included in GMP figures.

but that's besides the point. i'm not trying to dismiss the power of MSP, been there over a dozen times because my dads side of the family all lives there. i'll be there in again in 2 weeks. lots of industry. but back to the original point. tampa is better compared with MSP and st louis.

FORT WORTH, TX | The Handbook of Texas Online| Texas State Historical Association (TSHA)

the Butterfield Overland Mail and the Southern Pacific Stage Line used the town as a western terminus on the way to California.

Known as Cowtown, Fort Worth offered cowboys a respite from the cattle drives to Abilene, Kansas. Northern cattle buyers established their headquarters in the town

The Texas and Pacific Railway designated Fort Worth as the eastern terminus for the route to San Diego, California. After a delay caused by the panic of 1873 the Texas and Pacific was finally completed to Fort Worth on July 19, 1876; by 1900 the Missouri, Kansas and Texas (the "Katy"), the Santa Fe, the Fort Worth and New Orleans, the Fort Worth and Brownwood, the Fort Worth and Rio Grande, the Fort Worth and Denver City, the Fort Worth, Corsicana and Beaumont, and the St. Louis Southwestern (the "Cotton Belt") served the town.

Fort Worth, Texas is not a military base; it's an actual city. Fort Worth, Texas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Is there any other major cities that are overshadowed in the US?
Many of the cities in the southwest, mainly Phoenix, and to an extent Dallas and Houston.

Mais cidades de Phoenix, Dallas, e Houston.
