Washington Wizards star John Wall and former presidential candidates Bob Dole and Howard Dean appeared in a promotional video published by a group hoping to bring the 2024 Olympics to Washington, D.C.

Wizards players Bradley Beal and Otto Porter Jr., the Washington Capitals’ John Carlson (a Sochi Olympian) and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich are also in the 2-minute, 30-second spot.

Washington is vying for a possible U.S. 2024 Olympic bid with Boston, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The U.S. Olympic Committee is expected to decide if it will bid on the 2024 Olympics on Tuesday and, if it moves forward, pick a city within another 60 days.

Los Angeles is the only city of the four that previously hosted an Olympics, in 1932 an 1984.

A group hoping to bring the 2024 Olympics to Boston also unveiled a new promo video late Tuesday.
