National news correspondent rejoins WRFI to break down 2020 Election Day aftermath from Washington, D.C.

This week FingerLakes1.com National News Correspondent Gabriel Pietrorazio has joined Ute Ritz-Deutch, who hosts the Human Rights and Social Justice Program on WRFI amid their annual fundraising week for the community radio station.

Ritz-Deutch has taught at SUNY Cortland and Tompkins Cortland Community College, and currently serves as the Amnesty International area coordinator for upstate New York.

Today, Pietrorazio speaks with Ritz-Deutch following widespread celebrations in the streets of Washington, D.C. shortly after the Associated Press called the 2020 presidential race last Saturday, naming President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as the projected victors.
