Harry Reid Voted to Raise Taxes 'Only' 51 Times

FactCheck.org Logo FactCheck.org, Tall Tax Tales: In the Nevada Senate Race, Angle Makes the Inflated Claim that Reid Raised Taxes 300 Times:

Republican Sharron Angle says in a TV ad that Nevada Sen. Harry Reid "voted to raise taxes" 300 times. A "staggering 300 times." He didn’t. We reviewed the 304 votes provided by the Angle campaign and found its final tally was padded. ...

So, how many times did Reid vote to raise taxes? We found 51 of the 300 votes could fairly be labeled as such.
