A person familiar with the bid says the U.S. Olympic Committee has given Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker until the end of the day Friday to declare whether he supports the movement to bring the 2024 Olympics to Boston.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on Friday on condition of anonymity because the communication with the governor was confidential.

Baker, who has a news conference scheduled later Friday, has yet to declare his support. He is waiting for a consultant group to finish analyzing the bid.

The Boston bid has been beset by tepid polling numbers and an active opposition concerned about how much taxpayer money might be spent on the games.

USOC Chairman Larry Probst has said he needs to see support grow sooner rather than later.
