Cooper, a Democrat, won reelection to the freeholder board last year and has been weighing an assembly bid for several months.

Cooper’s mother, Dolores G. Cooper, a Republican, served five terms in the assembly, from 1982 to 1992.

Atlantic County Democrats had also hoped to run Jeff Blitz, a former county prosecutor, but he turned down the offer. The party has yet to reveal a slate to run against incumbents John Amodeo (R-Margate) and Vince Polistina (R-Egg Harbor Township).
