Some say the campaign trail can be like trying to navigate a maze. 

Stony Hill Gardens in Chester has brought that theory to life, and cut out a 10-acre cornfield maze in the likeness of Governor Chris Christie and democratic gubernatorial candidate Barbara Buono.

The rural business offers a corn maze each year, but this is the first time faces have been part of the design.

“We’ve never done faces before, and it was a great challenge,” farm stand manager Dana Davis said. “The reason we chose [the candidates] was to bring awareness to the [gubernatorial] race and get people out to vote.”

Davis said the farm used a “get out and vote” theme for the 2008 Presidential Election, and felt it even more necessary this year because of the local and statewide ramifications.

The maze will be open to the public Saturday, Aug. 31 through Sunday, Nov. 10—five days after the election—from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

Admission to the maze includes five bridge obstacles, game sheets and decoder glasses through the candidates’ faces.

How many acres did it take for Christie's face?

Show some class. Seriously, how immature and shallow are you?

Apparently, about as immature and classless as the Gov. is.

Jealousy, I love it. You must be a public employee. Welcome the next potus.
