There are reasons to believe she might be Senate material. As minority leader in the Georgia statehouse, Abrams compromised with her partisan foes — as when she cut a deal to preserve Georgia’s beloved Hope scholarship, which gives large college discounts to kids with high GPAs, albeit with drastic reductions. It was controversial among Democrats but offers evidence that she can make her way within a fractious governing body. Still, Legislator Abrams did not always enjoy a reputation for playing well with others. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution called her management style “aloof and uncommunicative,” and she doesn’t seem to have abandoned her tendency to help the other children by telling them the answers.

Near one tent, I sat with a group of Congolese men. Hugo Boluwa, a twenty-four-year-old mechanic from Kinshasa, cooked on a small camp stove, mixing chilies and onions with a grayish chicken leg he had received in his rations. “I left the D.R.C. because I was tortured,” he told me. “We were protesting, asking for a revision of the constitution, they arrested us. There were lots of us. There were people who died. The soldiers raped us.” He fled to Turkey and then to Greece. “I’ve spent ten months here,” Boluwa said. “I’ve been told I’m a vulnerable case.
