Dan Knise was president and CEO of the Washington-Baltimore 2012 Regional Coalition. He tells The Baltimore Sun that he's had "informal discussions" about making another run at the Olympics.

Several people involved in the 2012 bid and local political figures say they would support another bid by the region, although none had spoken directly to Knise.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake says the city "would do a phenomenal job" hosting the games.

The process of putting together a bid would include putting together a coalition, identifying sponsors, raising millions of dollars and submitting an application to the U.S. Olympic Committee.
