Bilbray challenged from the right? Who is John Stahl? (Ran in FL, 1994.)
June 22, 2011 | Me, Myself, I

On local San Diego radio, I heard a short interview with a John K. Stahl. He aims to run against congressman Brian Bilbray (R) in 2012.

Stahl spoke of being a former Navy vet, his business experience (at Raytheon) and intent on challenging Bilbray from the right.

I did a bit of searching and found he's run for congress before.

In 1994, he challenged a 14 year incumbent, E. Clay Shaw Jr., a Republican representing FL's the 22nd district (Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade).

Bilbray is good on some issues, like the border, but an establishment player.

He's been targeted through redistricting by the Dems which made me wonder who this Stahl guy is and what his motives are in challenging Bilbray, allegedly, from the right.

Do any Freepers recall Mr. Stahl from that '94 race?

I don’t have any current info for your question, but I can support your description of Bilbray, I have worked on a couple of his campaigns, but never with great enthusiasm.

My motives are quite simple
My forefathers gave me the American Dream and I am going to do what I can to preserve it for the kids and future generations of Americans
Bilbray is the lowest rated Republican on spending restraint in the Republican Delegation from California
He has a 63% rating from Citizens Against Gov’t Waste, He is the lowest rated Republican from the Club for Growth. He has had weak ratings his whole career from the National Taxpayers Union. Check it out, see for yourself. He is a career politician and a RINO. He would still be a registered lobbyist if Cunningham had not shot himself in the foot
This federal spending is out of control and he is not part of the solution, he is part of the problem
I am a proud former Naval Aviator, a 30 year veteran of the semiconductor industry and have a BS in Math and an MBA in Finance. Let me know of any questions that remain
