Group Sets Sights On Olympics In DC

A new group is focusing on getting the Olympic Games to Washington, DC. Washington is one of about three dozen cities in the country to be under consideration for the official bid by the US Olympic Committee. DC 2024 President Robert Sweeney says the two NFL teams in the area are just part of why Washington is perfect for the Olympics. The group will put together an official bid for the 2024 Olympics and Paralympics. DC 2024 says the Washington region would be a good choice because of the sports venues that already exist, and the high-security nature of the area.
