Why would anyone choose the wealthy to govern us simply because they made a lot of money?

We would not expect someone to have the talent to pitch for the New York Yankees simply because he is wealthy. So, why would we give to the wealthy the right to tell us how we live, how our money invested in government, is to be spent, and a host of other things of common interest solely because they have been successful at making money? After all, their expertise is limited to making money, usually in a very narrow field of endeavor. Why would we not expect their advice to be biased to favor them making more money?

We would; we do. Except, of course, when we choose a snake oil salesman to Make America Great Again.
