A former government contractor in Virginia who famously gave the president’s motorcade a one-finger salute won the race Tuesday for a seat on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors. Juli Briskman ran as a Democrat and defeated the eight-year Republican incumbent, Suzanne Volpe. This will be Briskman’s first time in elected office.
Briskman wrote on Twitter that she was looking forward to “representing my friends & neighbors” in the Algonkian District.

Briskman, 52, shot to fame in 2017 after a White House photographer captured her giving the finger to Mr. Trump’s motorcade as she rode by on her bicycle in Northern Virginia. The photo went viral, and Briskman posted it on her Facebook and Twitter pages.
