Biden “engaged in an extended Costco shopping spree, to the delight of shoppers and employees at the store,” according to the pool report.
The vice president flashed his Costco card as he walked through the doors to loud cheers. Employee Ivey Stewart handled a cart for Biden, who stopped frequently for hugs and photos.
