Democrat presidential contender Beto O’Rourke spoke Spanish to answer his first question during Wednesday night’s Democrat debate on MSNBC.

Asked if he supports raising the top individual tax rate to 70 percent, O’Rourke did not directly answer the question, replying, “This economy has got to work for everyone, and right now, we know that it isn't. It's going to take all of us coming together to make sure that it does” – then provided an answer in Spanish.

O'Rourke added that the current economy is "rigged," because it "favors those that can pay for access and outcome."

Later in the debate, a moderator asked O'Rourke a questions in Spanish, which the candidate again answered in Spanish.
