There will be no Olympic Games in Boston in the summer of 2024. The U.S. Olympic Committee has decided to choose another American city to bid for the games. Its decision came shortly after Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said he was not ready to sign a contract that would have made the city responsible for any cost overruns.

WBUR's political analysts — Republican Todd Domke and Democratic strategist Dan Payne — joined Morning Edition to discuss any potential political fallout from the bid's end.
