(ie: join arms with conservatives or stick to libertarian beliefs).

Rand's strategy is all about joining arms with conservatives. Before it's over he's going to have to join arms with more anti-liberty conservatives than he has already, and he's going to have to make compromises and promises to win their support, and he's going to have to keep those promises, or most of them anyway, if he gets elected. The scope of that doesn't seem to have sunk in yet with most of his supporters here.

Rand's only chance of winning is to convince the liberty movement that it would be insane not to join arms with the powerful but corrupted elements in the GOP, and to give them what they will demand in exchange for their support, because the other choice is Hillary. The Cuccinelli endorsement was just a warmup exercise.
