San Francisco is one of four American cities in the running if the U.S. Olympic Committee decides to bid for the 2024 Summer Games, officials said.

The process began 16 months ago when the committee discreetly reached out to 35 potential host cities to gauge interest in presenting a bid. Committee leaders spent the past six months holding discussions with a smaller group of potential hosts and the list was narrowed to four after Dallas and San Diego were scratched.
