San Diego Mayor Bob Filner says former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has pledged to advise him on bringing the world the first ever bi-national Summer Olympics in 2024.  San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico are among ten cities being considered as host by the Olympic Selection Committee.  

Romney lead the organizing committee for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.  Filner says his name lends instant credibility to the effort, and he added a binational committee will be announced shortly.
