Mayoral candidate has online virtual self to answer voter questions

"Like a tongue," DeMaio says.
You won't hear DeMaio, a 37-year-old city councilman and mayoral candidate, tell these stories during his ubiquitous local media appearances. When he's on stage, DeMaio is all about his plans to save city finances. Not personal anecdotes.
For this kind of talk, you have to go to an unusual source. DeMaio has created a virtual reality version of himself on his campaign website. He appears inside a whole virtual office. There's a fireplace, an American flag and a window with a view of the San Diego skyline. Type a question and DeMaio animates.
