Briskman told The Post in July that she wanted to turn that gesture toward Trump into tangible change in her community.
Vice President Mike Pence and former Vice President Joe Biden visited the state ahead of the ballot because it was considered to be a testing ground for campaign messaging ahead of the 2020 election, CBS reported.
Briskman will represent her district in Loudoun county near Washington DC, sitting on the county board of supervisors.
That decision paid off on Tuesday night, as Briskman celebrated her victory in a tweet that linked to a copy of the image.
Linking to a Washington Post article about the 2017 incident, Briskman wrote on Twitter how she was "looking forward to representing my friends & neighbors in #Algonkian District who backed me up today!"
Briskman ran on local issues, including fully funded schools, "an interconnected system of trails and parks", and, ahem, supporting women in the workforce.
In a viral photo that held her up as a kind of ordinary resistance hero, Briskman, an ultramarathoner, was pictured riding her bike and raising her middle finger at the president's motorcade as it left Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia. Her bosses said they were "separating" from her after Briskman made the photo her profile picture, allegedly violating the company's social media policy which says employees can't have "lewd" or "obscene" things on their pages.
"Health care doesn't pass, but you try to dismantle it from the inside. Voters want to know you understand their issues". "I did hear some people say "Oh thank God you're a Democrat, I'll vote for you no matter what" and some people were saying 'I can never vote for the Republican Party again based on what's going on in our country'".
"I just got angry", she said then.
