Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) issues the following statement on the launch of the campaign to bring the 2024 to the Capital Region:

“I’m a strong supporter of our region hosting the 2024 Summer Olympic and Paralympic games. The Olympics are a singular event, and we’ve seen how they capture the attention of the world every four years. In a DVR age, live sporting events are more compelling than ever. A successful summer games would generate long-lasting tangible and intangible benefits for communities in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia, serving as a weeks’ long advertisement for the place we are blessed to call home. Our region, including Maryland’s Sixth District, has so much to offer the world and I believe that we would thrive on a global platform. I congratulate the DC 2024 team on the launch of their efforts and look forward to working with them to promote the bid.”
