ABC News’ David Wright, Sunlen Miller and Andy Fies Report: Barack Obama says it is way too early for anyone to write an obituary for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

"Remember New Hampshire," he cautioned at a news conference on board his campaign plane.

Obama insists he’s not counting Clinton out.

"Sen. Clinton is working tirelessly, as is Bill Clinton, in Ohio and Texas," Obama said.  "This race is extraordinarily tight."

Obama sought to lower any expectations he might win those two states, saying he’ll be happy if Clinton doesn’t achieve a blow-out in Ohio and Texas. 

Obama said he’s hoping to emerge from the 4 contests next Tuesday – Ohio, Texas, Vermont, and Rhode Island – with a lead of 100 to 150 delegates.

"I continue to believe that we’ll go to the convention with the most earned delegates and I believe we should be the nominee," Obama said.

Obama denied a Canadian television report alleging that his campaign reached out to reassure the Canadian government not to worry about campaign rhetoric critical of NAFTA. 

The Canadian ambassador to the US has denied the story, first reported by CTV News. 

Asked about the report, Obama flatly denied it too.

"It wasn’t true," he said.
