Gov debate question 5: Liquor prices

Why is the cost of liquor so high?

Inslee: I wish people would have listened to me (on last year's initiative.) It's maybe a lesson that when we get initiatives we need to think really hard and not just listen to TV commercials.

McKenna: We're early in this process and I don't think the prices have shaken out yet. . . It's pretty early to judge where prices are going to settle out. But I think it's pretty clear voters wanted to move into the 21st Century and get the state out of the liquor business
