GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) — After their bruising U.S. Senate battle, Democratic senator-elect Chris Coons and defeated Republican opponent Christine O'Donnell made nice Thursday in a time-honored Delaware ritual where political foes bury a hatchet as a symbol of making amends.

Coons and O'Donnell rode together in a parade of horse-drawn carriages and old-time automobiles that ended with party leaders burying a hatchet in a box of sand.

Coons gave a thumbs-up signal when asked how he and O'Donnell were getting along.

O'Donnell said, "I sincerely wish him well."

The hamlet of Georgetown hosts Return Day after every election. It harkens back to a time when residents traveled to the county seat to vote and returned two days later to hear the election results read.
