D.C. Council Member Jack Evans, who's running for mayor of the district, said he supports a Washington group's bid to host the 2024 Olympics. But he said the city government will not fund the bid or provide financial assistance to build Olympic infrastructure if the bid is successful. "I would wish well and encourage the private sector to pursue this activity," he said.
