It is illegal for foreign entities to buy political ads in the United States. But that didn't stop the purchase of thousands of political ads on Facebook, paid for - in rubles - by foreigners.

It's time we update the laws so that online platforms are held to the same transparency standards as other companies that sell political advertisements.

In the 21st century, our adversaries will continue to use cyberattacks against us. We need to be prepared to defend our networks against this growing threat to our democracy, especially the most fundamental part of our political system: our elections.

The floor of the U.S. Senate isn't a place that usually sees a lot of drama.

It doesn't take a bruise or a broken bone for a child to be a victim of domestic violence. Kids who witness domestic violence are victims, too.

The continued vitality of our Constitution and the survival of each freedom it protects depend upon the right to vote and the vibrant democracy it affords us. In short, the right to vote underlies each of our other rights.

I am under no illusion that amending the Voting Rights Act in Congress will be easy, but with bipartisan calls for legislation to address it, I'm confident we are moving in the right direction.

I believe same-day registration has to be part of comprehensive reform of our voting systems that will also restore pre-clearance, shorten lines at polls, and ensure that no one who wants to vote is denied their constitutional right.

There are many fronts in the fight to make voting easier for all.

Preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon is one of the most important objectives of our national security policy, and I strongly advocated for and supported the economic sanctions that brought Iran to the negotiating table.

In my early campaigns, people would sometimes come up to me at a grocery store or at a shopping mall and say, 'I know you from somewhere.'

To me, a public servant should have both the grounding and the compassion to carry the common sense and good will of his or her neighbors into the political arena.

As elected officials, we were sent to the halls of government by our neighbors to do their work - and much work needs to be done. Remembering our shared experiences with the people we represent makes us better and more accountable civil servants.

As a U.S. Senator, I've tried my best to practice politics the way I think it's supposed to be practiced - always looking for common ground and truly enjoying the people I meet along the way.

Competition is the best way to ensure prescription drugs are affordable.

Where there's a lack of competition - as we saw with Mylan Pharmaceutical's virtual monopoly on EpiPen - price increases often follow.

We should look for ways to expedite generic drug approvals, particularly for products that have a long history of being safe and effective.

We can't just say the right thing on lowering the cost of prescription drugs: we have to do the right thing, too.

It's an uphill battle to help our kids learn to make good food decisions - particularly when they are too often presented with an a la carte lunch room choice of french fries or yogurt.

People don't become obese overnight. Allowing our children to have treats in moderation - as in trick-or-treating - is one thing, but good nutrition involves discipline that must be learned and practiced on a daily basis.

The consequences of poor nutrition and a lack of exercise are serious.

As a prosecutor and a senator, one of my main criminal justice priorities has been enforcing and reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act, a bill with deep roots in Minnesota, seeds planted by former Senator Paul Wellstone and his wife Sheila.

I have worked positively and successfully with Senator Sessions on issues like adoption and human trafficking.

When I was a prosecutor, we had one straightforward goal: convict the guilty and protect the innocent. To me, that simple mission still holds true.

We must make our world safer by rooting out the evil in our midst while still protecting the rights of people who mean no harm.

There must always be a balance between protecting privacy and security. In our country, one of the ways we have struck that balance is by requiring a court order before law enforcement can access certain communications of and data on suspects.

One thing is certain: we will not be successful in this fight against ISIS and other extremist groups unless countries in the region are a major part of the coalition.

Indeed, in strengthening our security, boosting our economy, and protecting our environment, Canada is our friend, neighbor, partner, and ally.

Canada has the world's largest Ukrainian population outside of Ukraine and Russia. As a senator from Minnesota, a state with a large Ukrainian-American community, I understand how important it is that Canada works with us to stand up to Russian aggression in Ukraine.

If Congress continues to sit on its hands, and the drug companies continue to stash cash in their stockings, Americans will be forever bound in the Jacob Marley-like chains of high prices.

I was one of the first women partners at my law firm, the first woman in my Minnesota prosecutor job, and the first woman elected from my state to the Senate. So advice from women who had done similar things was important for me.

Women politicians tend to lead by being accountable for results. We focus on goals and outcomes. You can't get by on just swagger.

In any job, you can come under attack or have a door slammed in your face. You do want to listen to critics; you don't want to be in a cocoon and never change. Get a second opinion from coworkers and friends. Know that criticism can be valid, but don't take it personally.

I have high expectations for the people who work for me. I figure that if they work really hard and do a good job on one of my campaigns or in my office, that experience will serve them well later on.

I have a dream that, one day, maybe we'll have more women in the Senate than there are victims of Harvey Weinstein's harassment.

For me, one of my earliest memories of politics where I thought that I could do anything was when Walter Mondale of Minnesota picked Geraldine Ferraro as his running mate. I literally remember what she wore - the red dress, the white pearls. And I saw that, and I thought, 'Anything is possible.'
