New Jersey farmer at Stony Hill Farm gets political with corn maze

CHESTER - A New Jersey farmer has cut the faces of Republican Gov. Chris Christie and his Democratic challenger Barbara Buono into a corn maze to highlight the state's gubernatorial election.

The corn was planted in June at the Stony Hill Farm in Chester.

The owner reportedly says he chose the maze to get people interested. He says everybody recognizes Christie but he doesn't know whether a lot of people would recognize gubernatorial rival Sen. Buono.

Christie is far ahead of Buono in public polls and leads among nearly every demographic group. He's seen as a viable contender for the 2016 Republican nomination for president.

The Morris County maze will open to the paying public Aug. 31. The election is Nov. 5.
