Apple is reportedly vetting North Carolina and Virginia as potential sites for its new campus

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper is negotiating an incentive package for Apple, according to a report in the Triangle Business Journal.

Citing unnamed sources in real estate, law and the North Carolina government, the report said the Research Triangle Park "tops Apple's short list."

Separately, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has also floated areas near Washington D.C., like Crystal City and Tysons, as locales for Apple.

North Carolina lawmakers are preparing a bid for a new Apple campus, according to a report in the Triangle Business Journal.

Separately, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has also floated areas near Washington D.C., like Crystal City and Tysons, as locales for Apple.

Citing unnamed sources in real estate, law and the North Carolina government, the Triangle Business Journal said the Research Triangle Park "tops Apple's short list," although the process is far from finalized Apple is still looking at sites across the country.

Gov. Roy Cooper is negotiating an incentive package for Apple, which has yet to be presented to the state's General Assembly, the Triangle Business Journal report said. Cooper has touted North Carolina's prospects for big tech bids in the past. Discussions took place over the weekend when Apple CEO Tim Cook visited Duke University to give a commencement address, according to the Journal. (Apple declined to comment.)
