Some are based on population rankings, and some (if not all) are highly subjective. For some states, I've provided multiple "second cities" because I couldn't really decide.

Texas- Dallas

New York- Buffalo

California- San Francisco

Florida- Jacksonville, Orlando, or Tampa

Georgia- Savannah

Ohio- Columbus or Cleveland (the former is larger, but the latter is more high-profile)

Illinois- Rockford

Wisconsin- Madison

Michigan- Lansing, Flint, or Grand Rapids

Virginia- Norfolk

North Carolina- Raleigh

South Carolina- Columbia

Tennessee- Nashville

Missouri- Kansas City

Kansas- Kansas City or Topeka

Arkansas- [I honestly have no idea]

Alabama- Montgomery

Arizona- Tucson

Mississippi- Biloxi

Colorado- Colorado Springs

Louisiana- Baton Rouge

Massachusetts- Worcester or Springfield

New Jersey- Jersey City

Hawaii- Hilo

Arrow What the 2nd city you think of when you hear these states, Part 2

Since I am such a geography buff and have a degree or two in it and we had such fun with the original thread, I would like to start Part 2 with different states which are probably more difficult for most. Leave it blank if you don't know and best to answer in the form of 2nd city to the major as for example Tuscon to Phoenix:
(all credit goes to the original poster's/creator's idea)

New Mexico

Nebraska

Oregon

Pennsylvania

Connecticut
