Investigators have swarmed a Delaware mail facility after intercepting yet another suspected explosive device addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden.
The package with Biden’s name on it was found at the facility in New Castle, Delaware on Thursday morning.
Biden’s package was similar to others containing bombs sent to prominent Democrats this week.
It is the ninth package intercepted as authorities continue the manhunt for the serial bomber targeting the liberal elite including the Obamas, Clintons and CNN.

All the people who have been targeted by the serial bomber are frequently maligned by right-wing critics, including former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder.
Former CIA Director John Brennan, prominent billionaire Democratic Party donor George Soros and California Representative Maxine Waters, an outspoken critic of Trump, were also targets.

Police said none of the nine devices found this week have detonated and no injuries have been reported.
The suspicious parcels were intercepted before reaching any intended recipients.
Some top Democrats have called the threats a symptom of a coarsening brand of political rhetoric promoted by Trump, who also condemned the acts.
At a Wisconsin rally on Wednesday night Trump called attention to ‘how nice I’m behaving’ but he attacked the media in an Thursday morning tweet as police were investigating the device sent to De Niro.
‘A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News,’ Trump wrote.
‘It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!’
The bomb packages were sent as the nation prepared for November 6 elections that will decide whether Democrats take control of one or both houses of Congress from Republicans and deny Trump the majority his party now holds in both chambers.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

An FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies ‘will continue to work to identity and arrest whosoever is responsible for sending these packages’, FBI Director Christopher Wray said in a statement.
Investigators were trying to track down another suspicious parcel they believe was addressed to Obama’s vice president, Joe Biden, a federal official told Reuters late on Wednesday.
The package sent to CNN contained an envelope of white powder that experts were still analyzing, according to Police Commissioner James O’Neill.
The first package, which turned up on Monday, was addressed to Soros, the billionaire financier and advocate of liberal, open-border values who is a frequent target of right-wing conspiracy theories.
The parcel intended for Holder ended up rerouted to the return address printed on all the packages – the Florida office of US Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who formerly chaired the Democratic National Committee, according to the FBI.
The package sent to Hillary and Bill Clinton’s property in Chappaqua, New York was found by an employee who screens their mail. Police guarded the property early Wednesday

The FBI said late on Wednesday it had confirmed that two additional packages, similar in appearance to the others, were addressed to Waters.
An FBI statement said the other packages consisted of a manila envelope with a bubble-wrap interior containing ‘potentially destructive devices’.
Each bore a computer-printed address label and six ‘Forever’ postage stamps.
Other officials said the devices contained in the envelopes were all similar to one found in the mailbox of the Soros home and later detonated by police.
At least one bomb was packed with shards of glass, one federal source said.
The US Secret Service intercepted packages addressed to Obama at his Washington home and to Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee for president, at her home in New York state.
The package to Clinton was found late on Tuesday while the one addressed to Obama was recovered early on Wednesday, both during routine off-site mail screenings, the Secret Service said.
