New Jersey farmer gets political with corn maze

CHESTER, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey farmer has cut the faces of Republican Gov. Chris Christie and his Democratic challenger into a corn maze to highlight the state’s gubernatorial election.

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

Owner Dale Davis tells Newark’s The Star-Ledger newspaper (http://bit.ly/13Fl0kE ) 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. Barbara Buono (BWOH’-noh).

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.
