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).

Gop Voters Should Choose Shaw
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.
