SALEM, Ore. — The campaign to privatize the liquor business in Oregon has begun.

Oregonians for Competition, a political action committee tied to the Northwest
Grocery Association, has already spent $30,000 on consultants in an endeavor that would allow most stores that already sell beer and wine to sell hard liquor.

Grocers and Costco led a successful privatization effort two years ago in Washington.
